80 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. This expertly-written book aims to establish sound basic techniques and training procedures for young athletes in track and field events. Written for the increasing number of young people joining the ranks of under-age competitions, the text directs itself to teach the young athletes the fundamentals of track and field, rather than to educate their coaches. Special attention is given to many-sided development of young people in athletics and the dangers of too-early specialisation for quick success are stressed. With these points in mind, Jess Jarver describes techniques in a simple way that encourages participation in a great ‘variety of events. In addition, he includes a short chapter on physical conditioning that presents a number of exercise routines suitable for all-round strength and power development. All track and field events in the text are covered by presenting the fundamentals of the techniques involved and by pointing out the common faults and how to correct them. A A number of training drills are suggested for each event. This is an ideal first manual for the young beginner to enjoy a wonderful sport. Jess Jarver has had over twenty-five years of active coaching and writing service in athletics to all ages and standards from basic keep-fit programmes through the National Fitness Council to authoring coaching manuals for professional coaches. He has himself coached several Olympians and international athletes and regularly visits East European countries to observe their training methods and talent development. He is Senior Coach and President of the Australian Track and Field Coaches' Association. He is the author of thirteen books, and editor of Modem Athlete and Coach.
